Segment: Luxury

The Rolls-Royce Ghost made its debut at the 2009 IAA in Frankfurt, Germany, and its a luxury class saloon meant to revive the company's sales and brand image.

The car's design is dominated by its majestic "Yacht Line" styling, with large, uninterrupted surfaces flowing between sculpted horizontal lines. The interior stays true to the company's tradition - a large, airy cabin full of perfect soft leather, fine wood trimmings and real metal finishes along with all the comfort features you could wish for.

Mechanically, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is built around a steel monocoque, using a double front bulkhead to better insulate the engine noise. Double-wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension backed up by an electronically controlled air ride system make for great stability and a glide-over sensation when driving past road irregularities.

Power comes from a 6.6 twin-turbo V12 engine making 563 bhp all sent to the rear wheels via an automatic ZF gearbox.
